Seattle 12-15 December 2009 - Photos from my trip

Seattle is really an amazing city and i have enjoyed myself a lot there. I was very surprised by the excellent public transport system they have in the city.
They just opened a new Light rail system that goes all the way from the airport to the city for $2.50 They also have FREE buses within the downtown area and there is a subway system and a monorail.

The pike market is a great place to hang out to have a coffee, to relax or just to have a look around the various stalls and shops. For tourists there are so many attractions to visit that you will hardly have time to get bored.

I also noticed that there is a great number of people who live in the downtown core and new apartments are popping up like mushrooms everywhere. Anyway here are some photos:

























Best bakery in town

Yeah i don't know what they were thinking in Toronto Most tourists in fact are not even aware that there is a waterfront in Toronto because you can't see a damn thing

Very nice photos/shots from Seattle, hellospank... the winter, cloudy terrain of Seattle is really lovely in some of those photos

It seems that these were photographed early morning on a Sunday...there is much more movement otherwise.
